WELL COLONEL?
Willkie's Liberalism
Is Real GOP Issue
WENDELL WILLKIE'S threat to stump the
entire state of Illinois thoroughly for the
'Presidential primary race is no "joke" in spite of
the good Colonel Robert McCormick's comment.
Maybe it seems funny to the publisher of
the notorious Chicago Tribune that Willkie
favors world-wide cooperation; maybe it is
amusing that the outstanding Republican in
the country is an advocate of liberal internal
politics. Perhaps Col. McCormick thinks that
the United States is still an advocate of the
good old-fashioned system of laissez-faire.
Well, all this may. amuse the Colonel, but it
isn't funny to the American people.
No longer do the great majority of citizens
believe that we can stay at home and like it.
Nor do they maintain that we should follow
that worn-out policy of "ostriceiism" The .fact
that the American foreign policy during the
last ten years has tended. more and more
toward international cooperation is indica-
tive of a change in middle class thinking. And
all this talk on post-war planning has not
been witl out effect.
So the issue between McCormick and Willkie
has resolved itself to this, the greatest issue of
the day--American relations to the rest of the
world and liberal internal domestic policies, as
Willkie put it. The struggle in reality will be be-
tween two factions within the Republican party
itself-nationalism vs. internationalism.
This little race, however, isn't going without
it's mud-slinging-at least not if the Colonel
has anything to say about it. He is so much the
withered-up isolationist that anything sugges-
tive of friendliness toward other countries is
a betrayal of America. Maybe that is why he
said, "I don't believe that foreigner (meaning
Willkie) can carry the state of Illinois." Maybe
that is why he told newspapermen,."As things
. stand now, any Republican nominee except
Willkie can beat Roosevelt."
But if Gallup polls and former election returns
are indicative of American public opinion, Col.
McCormick is going to be in for a big surprise,
It may be that no Republican' candidate but
Willkie will have a chance to defeat the Pesi-.
dent.
The tragedy will be, not if Willkie is nomi-
nated, but if the Repiablicans go back to their
traditions and choose a man of McCormick's
sentiments.- -Virginia Rock

I'd -Rather
BeRight
By SAMUEL GRAFTON
NEW YORK, July 18.-What does the inva-
sion of Sicily mean? It means there is no For-
tress Europa any more. What can be done at one
point can be done at another. It means that a
year of Hitler propaganda about the European
fortress is thrown out the window. The roof of
the fortress has leaked for a long time. Now we
see that its doors fly open when kicked.
Sicily means that the second front is tacti-
cally possible. We did not really know this
before. Hitler did not know it. The Allies did
not know it, and their enemies did not know
it. The Allies had hoped that a second front
was tactically possible. Now they know that
it is, which is very different.
Those among us who have talked idly, or
speculatively, or hopefully, of some alternative
method of warfare besides the second front,
perhaps pure air war, can do so no longer. They
used to be able to say: "Maybe it must be pure
air war, because maybe a second land front is
impossible." Those maybes were defeated on the
beaches of Sicily. The whole character of West-
ern public discussion of the war is affected.
Oddly enough, Sicily has as much meaning
for the Pacific, for Japan, as it has for Europe.
TheAxis's atempted excuses, its explanations
tha Sicily is only an island, will not greatly
hearten the Axis's island ally in the east. Only
an island, is it? So is the main body of Japan
only an island, and her most important pos-
sessions are only islands.
But these, so far, are surface meanings, the
obvious effects of a great event. Let us dig
deeper:
Sicily has ruled out the danger of a stale-
mate. Stalemate vas Hitler's last hope. Winston
Churchill warned us of this on May 20, when he
said, in -the most ominous terms: "There is one
grave danger which will go along with us to
the end. That danger is the undue prolongation
of the war. No one can tell what new compli-
cations and perils might arise in four or five
more years of war, and it is the dragging out of
var at enormous expense till the democracies
are tired and bored or split that the main hopes
of Germany and Japan must now reside."
Sicily is a blow against stalemate. Hitler's
loss of the hope of stalemate is his most stun-
ning defeat in Sicily, far more important than
the coming loss of Sicily itself.
It makes it necessary for Hitler to change
his strategy, and it leaves him no strategy to
change to. Russia proved that the Hitler offen-
sive was not invincible, and Sicily proves the
Hitler defensive is not invincible.
The test of a great event is its repercussions,
its ability to generate other great events. If
we glance back at the American scene now, we
see that those few ex-isolationists who have
asked that we postpone conclusions in Europe,
and concentrate on other fronts, have been
placed in as awkward a dilemma as Hitler
himself.
Their "line," like his, is shattered. It was all
very well to say: "Don't go into Europe, it's im-
possible." Now it is not only possible, it is ac-
tual; we are in Europe. If they would continue
their "line," they will have to say: "Come on back
out of Europe." This they cannot say.
So. every influence in the world 'that has been
making for stalemate has been affected by the
invasion of Sicily. Sicily is not only a great mil-
itary enterprise; it is great statesmanship. Look
at it closely, and you will see that this is the
West's first body blow at fascism. It has come
at last, even though it looked like a mere opera-
tion against an island.
Fascism and its friends, willing and unwilling,
conscious and unconscious, have equally been
overrun. This is what we have waited ten years
for.

once. Personally I think it's a situation that
unavoidably and naturally arises out of two
strange elements being thrown together, and
after a while the servicemen will get used to
their nice -new uniforms and the civilians will
get used to seeing them and everyone should
get along just fine. Strictly a question of
psychological adjustment,
But here's a thought which I've heard ex-
pressed by several Army and Navy boys here,
and one which I've had flit through my own
mind occasionally. These men are servicemen in
the true sense of the word, they follow a fairly
rigid military pattern, despite the continuance
of their college educations, and in case of the
soldiers, all have gone through reception center
camps.
Nearly every Army man who has been in a
camp will tell you that the most enjoyable
feature is the PX, Post Exchance. I believe
it's called the Shin's Canteen in the Navy.
These official canteens sell the servicemen
cverything from shoelaces to hair tonic at
bottom prices.
They're good spots relaxing and talking things
over during the little spare time the men are
allowed, they can get soft drinks, candy bars,
hamburgers, and in most places 3.2 beer. These
canteens are considered -a traditional part of
service life.
SUCH BEING the case, why not have a ser-
vice canteen for the men stationed here,
where the pay is no more than anywhere else
and where prices are probably as high as you'll
find anywhere in the country. I also think it
has the added attraction of being a place they
can call their own, where they won't feel that
social stigma (as it is considered by many
judging from their recent comments) of wear-
ing the uniform, will extend.
The USO, YWCA, the Union and the League
have had an admirable share in making the boys
feel at home, and there is talk that a permanent
USO building will soon be available. A Service
Canteen would round out the serviceman's re-
laxing hours' facilities very neatly.
A project like this would probably require
Army sanction, which, I believe would be easily
obtained for purposes of morale. At the same
time it would be a very effective gesture on the
part of the University or a University sponsored
organization to set up something of that na-
ture, by way of making the service students feel
at home at Michigan. A little good will can pay
off in many ways.. -J. M.

PEARSON'S
MERRY-GO-ROUND
WASHINGTON, July 18.-If Congress ever
took seriously Jesse Jones' demand for an in-
vestigation of his row with Henry Wallace, the
probing of certain activities, especially rubber
buying in Brazil, would give the public a real
treat.
Probably Jesse doesn't know all that is going
on under his direction in Brazil. Or perhaps his
demand for an investigation was mere bluff.
For instance, he may or may not know that
one of his executives supposed to be busy
buying up rubber in Brazil, William Graham,
spends part of his time collecting monkeys and
rare birds.
Graham has about 200 employees under him,
including machinists, carpenters, and welders
who build barracks and keep the river boats and
other equipment in condition. But some of them
are called upon to make repairs on Graham's
swanky jungle home, also to fix his yacht, and
build cages for his birds and monkeys.
Granam is proud of his wild-life collection
and even procured some steel drums-classi-
fied as strategic material-which he installed
in trees and on the grounds of his estate as
drinking fountains and bird baths.

One carpenter at Manaos spent an entire Sun-
day building cages for birds and monkeys, in re-
turn for which Graham promised him a week off
with pay. Another employee was ordered by
Graham to stencil a winged alligator on Gra-
ham's yacht. The employe spent two days with
an interpreter and run up a taxi bill of $20 look-
ing for stencil paper in Manaos stores.

Dominic Says.
WORLD affairs take on some
unique aspects as we enter a
week fetaturing Chiang Kai-Shek.
Christianity seems to be getting one
more chance to save a nation or con-
fuse it. Christianity first had its
political chance to develop a Chris-
tian culture in the days of Constan-
tine. It flowered in the eleventh and
twelfth centuries.
But today Protestant England and
the United States are about to de-
molish Catholic Italy and punish
Protestant Germany. Russia became
politically Christian Orthodox in the
tenth century; yet in the twentieth it
took an atheistic revolution against
the Tsar and the Church to bring the
economic and social blessings of west-
ern life to that people.
China, by a strange series of
revolutions and reforms beginning
with Sun Yat Sen's four principles
of renewal in 1911, has finally
come under the sway of a General
converted by his wife, the Sun fam-
ily and Christian missionaries.
Just what do we mean by Chris-
tianity? Not the political institutions
which landed us in two world wars
in a generation. Not the clash of
ideologies which run beneath those
wars. Not the wealth and trade and
prowess for which nations struggle.
